MOVIES/SCENES THAT MADE ME FEEL CINEMA FEELINGS FOR THE FIRST TIMES
Very first memories of movies making me feel lots of feeling (In drafts for awhile thanks @ListPrompts for reminding me to post it)
- •The Kid : breakfast sceneJust this very naive and cute scene of parenthood where Chaplin takes care of pancakes and kid. This is maybe my first memory of being obsessed by a scene: I wanted that chair and that breakfast. And I'm not even talking about the sad scene that follows but really just that cute introduction
- •The Kid : being taking awayYou may not hear the scream but you feel it. That Movie really my first movie memory I remember watching it at my grandparents and I don't think I've never been moved by art before that moment
- •Basically all of The KidI laughed I was afraid I cried and was so happy at the end : felt all the feels and I really think it's the first time a movie made me do that
- •Singing in the rain : the meeting in the car sceneNothing made me smile/giggles more than this scene. It has everything and Gene Kelly is so cute in it. Like in everything he is. Poke @sarahgorman
- •Edward Scissorhands : depending of my mood and age pretty much all the scenes tooI was very young when I saw it the first time and I watched it a lot since it was one of the only VHS at my grandparents country house. I felt in love with Edward (with Johnny Depp actually way later) I felt unfairness for the first time and basically the more I rewatched and the grower I got the more I learned.
- •Notting Hill : the "I'm just a girl" + final word "indefinitely" scenesAhhh when she asked the journalist to re-asks his question... Basically my first crush movie that made me love romantic comedies and Julia Roberts forever. I giggle and smile with heart in my eyes like an emoji during the entire movie, I still watch it every time it's on tv and I'm still happy every time I go to Notting Hill London (even if I've been there 10th times)
- •Aladdin : the Genie songI also remember the giant queue before getting to see it ! Now... Of course all the movie brings me laughter and joy but I just couldn't get enough of that song (or prince Ali too) hope you're sitting to hear what I'm gonna say : the French song is actually better than the US especially the "can your friends do this and that" that has much more words. So I watched the French dubbed versions much more often Than the US one, I only watched the US after learning Robin Williams was the Genie.
- •Add yours ! (Scene or movie)
- •A Goofy Movie: Hi Dad soup sceneThis movie is the first time I remember being emotionally destroyed by a movie??? Max and his dad's father-son conflict still kills me? Like Max being so embarrassed and angry at his dad who just is trying his best to love him in the only way he knows how?? And Max loves him too but is just trying to find his identity and survive adolescence?? Like I'm crying right now???Suggested by @sarahgorman
- •Joseph Cotten's speech from Shadow of A DoubtI saw this when I was very young, and it was one of the first times I was spellbound by a movie scene. Had me on the edge of my seat.Suggested by @MatthewAlmont
- •(500) Days of Summer : Expectations vs RealityMy god, this scene. The narration at the beginning and then the first line the background song being "he never ever saw it coming at all" 🙌🏾 This scene was the biggest part of me getting into movies in the first place.
- •The Social Network : "Point Zero. Three. Percent."No matter how many time I rewatch this movie, nothing makes my heart sink like the buildup to that line.
- •The Sound of Musicmy first crush was on Captain Von TrappSuggested by @jessacosta
- •American GraffitiI have vivid memories of seeing this for the first time, on TV. At the end, when Richard Dreyfuss flys off to college and Suzanne Somers follows the plane on the ground in her T-Bird, and on the soundtrack is just plane engine sounds, it shattered me. This very adult-seeming sense of wistfulness - brought about by the pure language of film - that I wasn't getting from Star Wars. (Also Lucas! He was better before Star Wars!) I still hope for that something extra from movies.Suggested by @roche
- •The Lion King - Mufasa's death sceneWhen I saw this scene for the first time when I was young, I got more upset and sad than I've been after several relatives passed away.Suggested by @franksars
- •Rear Window/Rope/Vertigo/Trouble with Harry/PsychoThese Hitchcocks were out of circulation for a little bit. I think Jimmy Stewart personally owned the rights (but please do your own research :) ). There were released all at once in the early 80s, and shown as "Hitchcock week" on one of our local TV stations. I didn't have words, I was just amazed.Suggested by @roche
- •The Lion King : Simba finds Mufasa's body@franksars almost got mine! While Mufasa's death was scary for me, immediately after when Simba tries to wake him up and starts crying 😢 wrecked me
